This appropriately titled debut album creates a heavy nocturnal ambiance by utilizing an extensive collection of instruments and sounds and the longing, slow voice of David Sylvian.

Night Within

L A N D:  Night Within (Important Records)
Label: Important Records    
Released in: USA    

"Guest contributions include David Sylvian, Daniel O'Sullivan (Miracle and Ulver), Duke Garwood and many others with the two creators taking a directorial role. The album was sculpted in Reykjavik by Ben Frost, enhanced by his signature aural physicality and visceral sub bass. The album is a vast collision of sound, from free brass and woodwind to 'geometric' bowed cymbals and metallic percussion. But more than simply music, the multidisciplinary L A N D draw on and evoke a wide range of art forms. They describe this work as 'approaching an apocalyptic noir narrative' and Night Within, despite its slate visual appeal which recalls the grey paintings of Gerhard Richter, thematically points towards a world occupied by the early postmodern detective stories of Paul Auster and the urban neon dislocation of Taxi Driver with its existential protagonist roaming the city alone late at night. CD & LP packaged in deluxe first edition letterpressed jackets."-Important Records
